Gov. Perry Orders Lowering of Flags in Remembrance of Pearl Harbor
AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry today ordered flags on state property to be flown at half-staff in remembrance of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor which claimed the lives of the 2,403 American servicemen and 68 civilians. Dec. 7 is “National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day” in the United States.
“Today every Texan should take a moment to remember those who lost their lives at Pearl Harbor,” Perry said. “We honor them, and all men and women who have served in our armed forces or given their lives to protect the freedoms we hold dear.”
Perry’s order calls for flags to remain at half-staff throughout the day.
